Kiss of Blessing

I was reading Psalm 85 last night and the last four verses struck me as so incredibly beautiful…”righteousness and peace have kissed!”

Psalm 85, by John August Swanson

“Unfailing love and truth have met
Righteousness and peace have kissed!
Truth springs up from the earth,
and righteousness smiles down from heaven.
Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings.
Our land will yield its bountiful
Righteousness goes as a herald before
preparing the way for his steps.”
-Psalm 85:10-13

    There is a similar idea in Zecharia 12 or 14 with Joshua the high priest, and for that matter with Melchi[king] zedek [righteousness], king of Jeru-salem[peace]Dad
